$100 for a Vanguard with a Leupy on it? You must be livin right!

Screw a synthetic stock, that stock has PLENTY of potential and life in it. As bad as the duct tape was it at least protected the wood itself. Stripping and refinishing is easy. The wood has great character and grain. I'd keep rubbing in light coats of linseed until it quit taking them. Then for the metal refinishing I'd go with a professional T-coat or something impervious to anything short of nuclear war but if you are just deadset on cheap and DIY then I'd go with a good matte or even be really unique and go with an antique brown like many old muzzleloaders. I know from restoring my 16ga A-5 a few years ago, rust bluing is also a TOUGH finish that looks better with age.

Love the ol Wbys and you are in yours so cheap you have plenty of options!!! ;\)

A coating other than the bluing you used that doesn't need to be anywhere near this beautiful weapon. I think it turned out great the way it is and wouldn't change anything. But, maybe that's just me.
